obama's oscar dress is a little racy for iran, so they photo shopped it. during a report on the oscars, the first lady's dress suddenly had a high neckline and sleeves. mrs. obama helped announce "argo" as the winner of best picture which iranian officials also slammed as propaganda for the c.i.a. calling the oscars politically motivated. i actually like the dress on the right. i don't know what that means. >>brian: i didn't know iran had colorforms. what does iran think about the way ben affleck think about the way it was depicted? do you think it was for diplomatic reasons where they captured our hostages? do we skew that? >>steve: iran said it is basically farcical about the movie. >>brian: let's talk about the president yesterday and his comments. i cannot believe how much is going to go wrong. $85 billion, no one is going to be inspecting me. going to be an hour and a half to get on a plane. we are going to have massive defense cuts, and the national parks are going to be cutting down their hours. the president and the white house cabinet is in full force to say sequester. it is g

house, the first ladies really have not spent much time. we have an example with michelle obama, she was not familiar with the white house, where as laura bush was familiar coming in during the george h.w. bush presidency. tell us a little bit about michelle obama's transition in and how she prepared for it. >> michelle obama is a serious student, but i don't think there is any way one can be prepared in a sense to really know what is going to be like. her husband had been a u.s. senator for a few years, but she and the girls had stayed in chicago where her whole family and support work. the bush people were incredibly helpful and generous about what the office was like and the structure and all that. the bushes were as well, personally, when the obama is visited. but i have to say there's just no substitute for being there. mrs. obama and the family were first at the adams hotel and then the blair house and into the white house for coffee, as is the tradition on inauguration morning. and everyone went off to the inauguration, and then what the white house residence staff does is jus
of young democrats. to hear this man talk was really astounding. i am quite critical of the obama administration in terms of things i have done. in terms of hagel's nomination, i am very impressed. his views on foreign-policy almost seemed to dip -- too far beyond this era. my only feel is that the political parties will bring this ideology down simply because a lot of people are not prepared for it. thank you and have a good day. guest: i think -- i would beg to differ about the too far beyond this era. i had the privilege of working for former secretary of state george schultz. in my estimation, senator hagel's views are consistent with secretary schultz, whom i think is one of the giants of our time. i think they have the same sort of outlook of trying to be pragmatic and take a look at things from multiple dimensions and informed judgments based on the conditions of the time. i think we have had many people of this particular persuasion. we have been fortunate in our country to have many leaders like senator hagel. i share your hope that we continue to have them going forward.
like a reelected president -- barack obama, bill clinton -- that means continuity rather than change. but as far as speaking itself, i enjoy it. i enjoy the challenge. you are walking into a room full of strangers. you have never met them, they have never laid eyes on you, they may have seen you on television in passing or whatever -- within an hour, they walk out with some sense of you. 45 minutes to make them think, make them laugh. that is the highest praise you can get, is somebody coming up and saying, you made me think and made me laugh. that is high praise for me as a speaker. >> let's lay down the basics for mark shields -- born where? >> massachusetts, may 25, 1930 seven. >> parents did what? >> my dad was a paper salesman, involved in the town, government and politics. my mother had been a schoolteacher but at that time when schoolteachers married they could no longer -- they were stained women or something of the sort, because they no longer could teach in the public schools of massachusetts as a married woman. so she was a mother and homemaker. >> how many brothers and si
need to invest in education in order to produce good citizens, i joined president obama today in asserting with urgency that our citizenry deserves a strong foreign policy to protect our interests in the world. a wise investment in foreign- policy can yield for an nation the same return that education does for a student. and no investment that we make that is as small as this investment puts forward such a sizable benefit for ourselves and for our fellow citizens of the world. that is why i wanted to have this conversation with you today, which i hope is a conversation that extends well beyond the borders of charlottesville, well beyond this university, to all americans. when i talk about a sport -- a small investment in foreign- policy in the united states, i mean it. not so long ago, someone pulled the american people and ask, how big is our international affairs budget? most pagan as 25% of our national budget, and they thought it out -- most paid it as 25% of our national budget. and they thought it should be pared back. would that that were true. i would take 10% in a hea

to get a sense on how significant a dent that could put in the relationship if president obama says no to the keystone. >> i think it depends on how it is managed between the two leaders. this is a case in which the prime minister believes this is an important issue for canada. it was understandable in the context of the run-up to the presidential election campaign the last time that he was saying no and there were other issues that were more of a local nature as well at the site, it could be accepted as something that was more in the nature of the delay and a flat-out refusal. i think it will be meaningful. it will be important how it is explained if the answer is no. what is the justification? what is the reality that is perceived to come out of it? if their reasons are door that you describe them, i will be found -- that will be found unacceptable and that would be a problem. >> in talking to canadian politicians, there are some things out of joint. a lot of it has to do with the suggestion that if canada were to do more on the climate change front, this might help us. canadian p

drastically trimmed by the so-called sequester, president obama urged congress to avoid the cuts and specifically urged republicans in congress. >> republicans in congress face a simple choice. are they willing to compromise to protect vital investments in education and health care and national security and all the jobs that depend on them, or would they rather put hundreds of thousands of jobs and our entire economy at risk just to protect a few special interest tax loophole that is benefit only the healthiest americans and biggest corporations? that's the choice. >> while the cuts would put the gvt government on a path towards a debt reduction, they are inkrimtat or a lot like a meat clever. it would force the f.a.a. to regularly furlough 4,000 workers a day which accounts for more than 10% of its entire staff. 125,000 families would immediately lose rental assistance putting them at risk of homelessness, and the military's health insurance program would face a $3 billion shortfall, meaning retirees and dependents of active soldiers could lose their coverage. as congress heads
of course more unless being passed 20 years later by the obama administration. the obama administration also believes that its experts know that what we need in terms of energy is green energy. so we're going to channel a lot of resources to green energy companies. but it's not just democrats that do this sort of thing. i was writing this morning about how the state of virginia has been trying to centrally plan the love lives of virginians for 100 years. they tried to keep the mentally feeble from reproducing the they tried to keep people of different races from marrying. now to try to keep people of the same sex from marrying. and in all these cases it really is, we experts know better than these people who should marry, who should love, how people should live. we've got a government that subsidizes marriage for some people and bands it for others. that is the fatal conceit. that is central planning. thinking that you can centrally plan love. so with individual rights. we're spontaneous order. and then the third key element is limited government, which is what protects individual rights and
